Librivox recording of The Federalist Papers, by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison.

The Federalist Papers (correctly known as The Federalist) are a series of 85 articles advocating the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven of the essays were published serially in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between October 1787 and August 1788 . A compilation of these and eight others, called The Federalist, was published in 1788 by J. and A. M’Lean.

The Federalist Papers serve as a primary source for interpretation of the Constitution, as they outline the philosophy and motivation of the proposed system of government.The authors of the Federalist Papers wanted to both influence the vote in favor of ratification and shape future interpretations of the Constitution. According to historian Richard Morris, they are an “incomparable exposition of the Constitution, a classic in political science unsurpassed in both breadth and depth by the product of any later American writer.”

Subject: Seeing Both Sides
I would have to agree that it takes some gall to trash a project on account of the reading of 2 of 85 chapters of an otherwise terrific work.
But I would also agree with Lisa L that those two chapters should be redone by someone else. No one can possibly know the readers motives but we can rate the experience. My rating for the reading of those two chapters is a 2 on a scale of 1 - 10 and I gave a lot of credit in that rating for proper pronunciation.
Bottom line is that the project is still really well done and important for people to know. I have time to listen to much more than I have time to read so kudos to all the readers for taking the time to read for this project.

Subject: Of all the Insolence!
Can you imagine the gall it takes for someone to have 85 chapters read for them at no charge and then to trash the entire project because she didn't like the way someone read two chapters? I've listened to the chapters the previous reviewer was complaining about, and they're fine. He isn't trying to do anything other than to read the chapters with the voice and personality he has. Sometimes you just don't like someone's personality or attitude--know what I mean?

Subject: The worst reader I've heard on Librivox!
While many of the readers of the Federalist Papers are quite good, the person reading Fed 11 and 12 is terrible. He reads with a mocking and creepy tone that is so off-putting I'll be skipping all the Federalist Papers (and anything else on Librivox) that he reads. He seems to be purposefully trying to ruin the listening experience. If possible, please get the other readers to redo his submissions and recommend another kind of volunteer work to him!
